Country Focus Community Forum

Country Focus Community Forum, organized by Business Review, will bring together Romania’s main foreign investment communities and policymakers in a bid to map the country’s future strategic economic development. The event will take place at Sheraton Bucharest Hotel, Platinum Hall.

With the centennial marking this year, Romania has the opportunity to start a conversation about its role in the region and its future development strategy as an EU member state. Romania is also scheduled to get the EU Council rotating presidency in the first half of 2019, compelling policymakers to navigate a complex international environment marked by UK’s planned EU departure. Foreign direct investments in Romania have been hovering around EUR 4.5 billion in the past two years and the main investment communities present locally will make recommendations to support Romania’s economic ambitions as it looks to join the Euro zone.
